Celebrate winter cycling at the Coldest Day of the Year Ride!

On Sat, Feb 1 ride with Cycle Toronto from Queen's Park to Dufferin Grove Park, where there will be a small campfire set up next to the skating rink. The group will depart at 12:15pm from Queen's Park at Hoskin Ave

Bring your skates and a reusable mug for campfire hot chocolate, or bring a thermos with your own hot drink. Dufferin Grove Park's Zamboni Cafe also has hot chocolate, snacks, and $2 skate rentals.

It’s easy to stay in the saddle year round! With the right equipment and friendly company, there’s no reason to put your bike in the basement when winter hits. During a typical Toronto winter, blizzards or ice storms are the exception, not the rule. Most cyclists legitimately avoid travel during extreme conditions. On any other winter day, though, cycling obstacles are not snow and ice, but rather cold temperatures and wind. By dressing well and having the right amount of determination, year-round cyclists can enjoy using their bikes while feeling comfortable and warm.

BIXI Special
Don't have a bike available for the ride? No problem! All BIXI bikes will be given free extra usage time from 12pm to 4pm. There is a BIXI dock at Queen's Park where you can check your BIXI in before the ride. There are also have limited reservations to test a BIXI bike for free on this ride. Reserve yours by emailing by Thurs Jan 30. Thanks to BIXI Toronto for supporting this ride!
